. romney got a c, mccain got a c+, the press got a lower grade, the voters gave themselves a lower grade. four years ago they gave themselves a b; this year they gave themselves, just a c. now part of that is partisanship. it was mostly the republicans who had a lower opinion of how the voters performed, but none the less, it fit with a very negative take on this campaign. >> sreenivasan: so there is also this underlying tension between the diminishing hope in the electorate and increase in anger. >> yeah, i mean there is no question about it. a public who says, we would like to see... 67% saying we would like to see republicans work with obama and make some compromise, and we find 72% saying that they want to see obama make some compromises with republicans. but then we ask people what do you expect, and they don't expect any... a majority say they don't expect things to get better, and 14% say they expec it to get worse. so you have 2/3 with a negative outlook. and part of it has to do with the opinions of voters themselves. republicans... only 46% of republicans, the base, wants the

. smart conservatives know this is no way to treat a potential voter. it was put this way in the "new york post." romney didn't say the election came out as it did because obama's team outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. he said obama won the second term through essentially bribery. i have three rules for both parties as they converge to do their jobs. respect the vote are. respect each other's offices and search hard for common ground. that's what we should be doing and guiding our country's conversation. not trashing the people who voted against you but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. washington bureau chief from mother jones and our political analyst. let's take a look at some of this stuff from john mccain. four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid, ten days since mitt romney lost but they are holding a grudge against the president and their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference calm about obama's gifts and mccain's gifts about obama ally susan rice. >> what the president, the president's campaign did

of dollars spent on ads and by these super pacs. voters turnout was down by about 5% this year over the last time. but most to have the money was spent by supporters of mitt romney, and it didn't win the electorate. so should we be caring anymore? is it okay for them to be throwing their money away if they want to and the message not getting through? >> well, i felt it was a perfect example of free market economies, right? all the money that was spent -- what was it, $8 million -- i think it was $800 million, relative to $500 million on the left. didn't work. the electorate made their voice known and i think what's particularly powerful is this is an election cycle where i think the american public, for the first time in a long time, said enough is enough all the horrible things that were being said about women, in fact, insured many women's victory because a vote for mccaskill was against the horrible things akin was saying. not so much a vote for donnelly, but a vote for the things his opponent was saying. so i think citizens united already demonstrated itself to not have the overweaning p
? . he believed this was an issue that voters cared about that independents would swing to obama over climate change and some of the polling absolutely supports this that this was one of the reasons that people voted for obama over romney was that they were concerned about climate change and they felt he was a better candidate on climate change. we had a terrible, terrible candidate on climate change and we had a candidate on climate change who needs a lot of pressure. so i feel more optimistic than i did in 2008 because in 2008 the attitude of the environmental movement was our guy just got in and we need to support him and he's going to give us the legislation that we want and we'll take his advice and we're going to be good little soldiers and now maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but i think people learn the lesson of the past four years and people now understand that what obama needs and what we need, forget what obama needs is a real independent movement with climate change at its center and it will put pressure the entire political class and there's no waiting around for obama
all the black, latino, young voters who showed them their appreciation. that is the bedtime mitt romney is telling himself on those sleepless nights when he lies awake still trying to make sense of why he's not the president. the former governor got caught on tape again. speaking to a group of wealthy like-minded people again. telling us what he really thinks about the half of the country whose votes he couldn't win again. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinaire financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> romney's story was actually the second chapter in the tale republicans have been spinning to explain the election. the first came earlier in the week when romney's former running mate paul ryan placed the blame on democrats in urban areas. >> the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> never mind the fact that he and mitt romney c
romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people. that group is getting smaller and smaller. they haven't figured out what to do yet, but they do know that talking about the people who vote against you, whether it be the 47% or they just like to get gifts is not the best way to get started. >> so, chuck, your president obama now and you have a second term. what is at the top of his agenda? how does he prioritize what he is going to do? >> first, obviously, the fiscal cliff that you're talking about is the big thing on his plate right now. it will determine so much what happens after that. i think the big possibility that could sort of rival health care which was the big accomplishment in the first term, for all of the problems that he had, it would be immigration reform. he talked a good bit about that in the news conference. it would be a big, big achievement that past presidents

[laughter] >> i have no doubt that there's a focus group somewhere of undecided ohio voters who have lived in a cave the last 30 years who decided they like that. don't show any disagreement with the president, don't rock the boat, or have a personality contests. those turn out so well for us. our ideas work. their ideas don't work. even that first debate, house striking was it when mitt romney pressed obama his response was under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity. the whole land of obama is about bill clinton and how nifty the economy was under him. i would have given a limb to see mitt romney turned to him and say mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] >> our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years we average 3.3% growth a year. this president is fond of saying -- the worst economy in the history of the universe and everything by the way is george w. bush
